Google Phone G1

This month October 22nd the search engine king Google is going to sell its first Android capability phone G1.The phone, which is manufactured by Taiwan-based HTC Corporation. Though it’s out looking is something like as iPhone but a lot of  functional and outer difference between the two phones. The weight of G1 is 5.6 ounce where Apple iPhone is 4.7 ounce. So G1 is heavier than iPhone. The G1 — 4.6 inches high, 2.1 inches wide and .62 of an inch thick

One of the G1’s physical attributes is that it is slight curve at the bottom. It can protect the phone from a sudden fallen from your hand. The G1’s QWERTY keyboard is good, the keys are small, even for little fingers, and in some ways, it elicits the same frustrations as using the iPhone’s on-screen keyboard. It also has a very slick touch screen like the iPhone,and search engine friendly a full HTML Web browser.

The price of G1 Phone is $179 only with two years contract. where iPhone is $199. So it is 20 dollar less than iPhone.

There are two basic data plans option by T-Mobile. The first is $35 for unlimited use, including text messages; the other is $25 a month, and includes 400 text messages.

T-Mobile’s least expensive voice plan is $29.99 for 300 minutes, so if you choose the budget route, you’re looking at about $55 a month for the phone. AT&T users pay a minimum of $69.99 a month, including 450 voice minutes, for their iPhones, and text messages are extra.

There’s no mistaking Google’s presence on the phone, which includes Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail e-mail, Google Calendar, and You Tube (which Google owns).

Google Talk for instant messaging is there, too, but so are AIM, Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo! Messenger. and the various Google online programs and documents. Instant messaging is responsive and easy on the phone,

It works on T-Mobile’s EDGE and 3G networks, pretty much the same as the iPhone uses on the AT&T network. By next Wednesday when the G1 goes on sale, T-Mobile says it will have 3G coverage in 23 metropolitan areas around the country.

On the bottom of the phone when the keyboard is hidden, and on the right when slid out, are the main navigation buttons to make or disconnect a call, open a menu screen and go back a screen. The little grey trackball is right in the center of the controls and works like a miniature mouse.

Like other smart-phone operating systems, Android allows users to install any number of applications on top of it. Taking a page from Apple, Google has made it easy to find and download programs directly to the phone with an application called the Android Market.

Unlike the iPhone, on the G1, you can run multiple programs at the same time. So, you can have Google Talk or AOL Instant Messenger running in the background while you surf the Web or listen to music. The G1 will alert you when you’ve got new instant messages, something the iPhone won’t do.

For instance, the G1 has a Google search bar on its home screen, which is like a computer desktop. With the G1 closed and the keyboard hidden, the search box looks inviting; you can see and even click into it. On the iPhone, clicking on such a box would bring up a virtual keyboard that would allow you to enter text and initiate a search

Getting movies, music or even contacts on to the G1 is a lot more difficult than it is on the iPhone, because Google doesn’t have anything similar to iTunes to manage the transfer of such data from a PC. Nor can you sync directly with an Exchange server for your work e-mail or address book, as you can with both the iPhone and Research In Motion’s BlackBerrys.
Both the Android and the iPhone are very similar in their basic capabilities. They both have large touch screens, GPS, WiFi, 3G cellular antennas, accelerometers, and a camera. On the software side, the both have fully capable browsers (based on Webkit), Gmail, GPS-enabled Google Maps, a music player, and a whole array of third-party apps that you can browse and download directly from an App Store on each device.Google Maps on Android includes Street View pictures. Coupled with the compass and GPS, you can see a picture of the street you are on or the building in front of you simply by holding up the phone and moving it around

Unlike every other smart phone I’ve used, the G1 doesn’t come with software to synchronize your calendar or address book with a PC or Mac, which could be a big problem for many people but not for those who already use Gmail or Google Calendar. Microsoft Outlook users can get their data into the G1 by first using free PC software to synch with Google’s web applications.

The phone does come with a USB cable to transfer music or photos between the phone and a PC or Mac. Unlike Apple products, it uses the same standard Mini-USB connector as the Blackberry and many digital cameras. You can also charge the device from a computer’s USB port.

The G1 has a better camera (3 mega pixels) but it has no any video recording system. There’s a option to see video clip or file from You Tube.

Bottom line: After all we congratulate the Google phone G1.Though there’s some limitation and disadvantages in this phone but in near future we will expect more function enriched, easy operating system low price and latest all technology based phone from Google.To see the picture and other information you may visit the site presented below
